Victory Media has named Northeast State Community College to the Military Friendly Schools list.
The 2015 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
“It is an honor to be included in this select group of colleges and universities for the sixth consecutive year,” said Pat Chandler, coordinator of Veterans Affairs at Northeast State. “Our College strives to offer the best possible services to those who have already given so much. We want these students to be successful.”
The Military Friendly Schools website, www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, features the complete list as well as interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.
The survey captures more than 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is available free of charge to the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding.
Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
Northeast State Community College has a main campus located in Blountville and satellite campuses located in Elizabethton, Johnson City, Kingsport, Gray and Bristol.
